Episodes do survive, as ABC seems to have kept some of them. Since ABC donated a large amount (all?) of the kinescopes they had to a film and television archive in the 70s or 80s (I forgot which decade), I can compile this list of surviving episodes from the website of that archive:
Ghost of Gunsight Pass (1950-09-09)
Ghost of Indian Creek (1950-06-18)
Placer gold (1950-04-28)
Arrow (1950-03-23)
Border bandit (1950-07-15)
Brass rainbow (1950-02-23)
Canyon kid (1950-06-10)
Frame-up (1950-05-05)
Marked tree plot (1950-07-27)
Silver ingots (1950-07-27)
Smoke signal (1950-07-23)
The Smugglers (1950-03-09)
The tenderfoot (1950-09-02)
Texas stranger (1950-08-19)
Tin horn Swindle (1950-08-05)
Triple Creek robbery (1950-05-29)

Note 1: I cannot understand the year-month-day date system
Note 2: I forgot to copy the "the" on many of the episode titles
Note 3: Some of the episodes (maybe all?) have the commercials for Kern Food Products intact.

I can only hope one of the PD-TV-On-DVD companies puts a few episodes on DVD.

Yes....as long as it exists, at least there's a chance someone might put it on DVD. Unlike with, say, "The Hazel Scott Show" which is completely lost and as such we will never be able to view it.
